I don't use reddit, so I've never seen it. There are others like me.

Unscrew them at the same time
When you unscrew the first one, it puts the other end at an angle, making the straight threading difficult to undo.

There's a special place in hell for those who don't screw it in.

I tried to unscrew a DVI plug from our old PC but it wouldn't budge, so I got a pair of pliers and it decided to pull out the entire ******* thread & nut with it. So now not only is the graphics card minorly damaged, I now can't use that cable again because it's ******. Those dirty bastards.

Screw the looser one in, it will even out the pressure on the other and you can easily unscrew them both

You tightened one side first, which pulled the plug as a whole towards that side, taking the second side further away from the socket and off alignment, meaning it wouldn't screw in correctly.

This is why you tighten wheel-bolts in a star pattern and everything else with two or more screws by alternating between the screws.

For a second I was thinking "Why the **** is there an HDMI port beside a VGA port!?"


Then I realized that it is the back of a TV.

Well, typically with HDMI ports you'll find DVI ports, unless it's a TV.
I suppose VGA is too common.

Could be an HD monitor to be honest. Some are like that, mainly because some people for some reason buy HD monitors when they don't have a computer for HDMI.

I find multiple inputs pretty useful personally... I use my VGA port to connect my laptop to use dual screens with that sometimes. I also use the HDMI port to work on my Raspberry Pi when I need.

Besides, If you use a short VGA cable, you can have a picture just as clear as HDMI or DVI up to 2048x1536

I unplug and plug in DVI cables about once every other day, so I don't usually use the screws at all. :/
if I do i just use one.
